Learn About Local History

Take a trip to the region’s past and visit some historical Misión churches. The Misión de Nuestra Señora de Loreto Conchó can be visited in the downtown area and is not to be missed. It was established in 1697, although the lack of access to water proved problematic in terms of agriculture. Though the mission was closed in 1820, it can still be visited today and is a popular tourist destination. Nearby Misión San Francisco Javier de Viggé-Biaund is also a popular destination for tourists who want to learn about the area’s history. This mission was dedicated in 1899 after the Jesuits discovered that Misión de Nuestra Señora de Loreto Conchó couldn’t sustain itself agriculturally in the long term. Though it was deserted in 1817, now it has been restored by Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History and offers a beautiful interior for exploration.

Stroll Along The Malecon

While you’re in the area, take some time to visit the Malecon and take a stroll. This is a strip road along the beach that offers amazing views and great chances to people watch and simply take in the local atmosphere.

The town is known for offering a wide variety of options for delicious food that is also fairly affordable, so this is the perfect opportunity to indulge in some delicious local flavors.

Peaceful And Laid Back

A seven hour drive from nearby Cabo San Lucas, you’ll find this is another world entirely. This is not a resort town, but is the perfect destination if you’re looking to relax and take in some local culture. If you’re more interested in having a quiet drink while watching the sunset from the pier instead of dealing with hordes of drunk tourists, you’ve come to the right place. Being further away from the resort areas also offers the benefit of being more affordable than many of Mexico’s other resort towns, so make sure to take advantage and indulge in everything this picturesque town has to offer.

Whale And Dolphin Watching

If you’re visiting, dolphin and whale watching should be high on your list of things to do. If you’re looking for a boat tour to venture out onto the water and discover some amazing marine life, you will find a wide variety of options. In the spring you can catch a view of one of the largest and most magnificent creatures on the planet, the blue whale. Spotted dolphins, humpback whales, fin whales, rays, and sea turtles are other examples of some examples of the exciting sea life you’ll be able to see in the National Marine Park. You can even take to the water in a glass bottom boat, where you can witness the majestic beauty of its undersea world without ever having to get wet at all.

Take A Mule Ride

If you’re looking for an authentic Mexican experience, be sure to take a mule ride. With a variety of options to suit your schedule, you can ride a mule through the local area’s cactus valleys and learn about the ranchero lifestyle and history, as well as meet some locals.
